Pittsburgh Invisalign® Candidates

If you are an adult or older teen with moderate to severe malocclusion, you may be an ideal candidate for Invisalign®. Our Pittsburgh dentists can best determine your candidacy for this alternative to metal braces during your one-on-one Invisalign consultation. During this meeting we will be happy to answer any Invisalign questions you may have, assess your level of malocclusion, and discuss all of your realignment options.

If you live in or around Pittsburgh and would like to learn if Invisalign is right for you, please contact Dentonics, Inc. or call 412-487-6910 to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign offers a number of benefits over traditional metal braces. Invisalign treatment is completed with a series of soft, clear, plastic aligner trays. These trays are worn for 20 to 22 hours each day, but can be removed for eating and teeth cleaning. This provides the benefit of allowing you to maintain your normal diet and to reduce your risk for both general and cosmetic dentistry issues such as cavities, gum disease, and tooth discoloration.

The soft plastic aligner trays are gentle enough to prevent irritation of sensitive gum tissue while still strong enough to push teeth into their optimal alignment. In fact, Invisalign trays are so effective at producing results that treatment can often be completed in 12 to 18 months. For comparison, traditional orthodontic treatments can take up to 36 months in adult mouths.

You will need to wear your aligner trays at all times unless eating or cleaning your teeth, but the clear material makes them almost entirely unnoticeable. This benefit alone makes Invisalign a more attractive option for many of our adult patients.
